Flight of the Kiwis

Everyone was talking about how the Kiwis almost pulled off a thrilling mammoth chase against the Australians. In this match, the flying Kiwis took the "almost" out and achieved what seemed impossible. A friend of mine just called me and said he changed the channel after Styric was dismissed and the Kiwis were 8 down, with 74 needed in 7 overs. I did too, but I kept switching back, and was witness to something remarkable as McCullum and Vettori created history, that too with an over to spare.

And one of the oldest cliches of the game is drilled into Lewis' head - The game is a great leveler.
